    The National Park Service says it's considering expanding an overnight lodging program in the Chesapeake & Ohio National Historical Park.

    The agency is holding public meetings Tuesday night in Potomac and Thursday night in Hancock to discuss the program.

    Since 2009, the NPS and the nonprofit C&O Canal Trust have offered six lockhouses along the canal for overnight stays. The NPS honored the program with a national award in 2011.

    Park Superintendent Kevin Brandt says he wants to hear ideas from the public on ways to expand the program to other canal buildings.
